Arguably the most important part of your wedding day is the wedding cake. You want it to taste amazing, but you also want it to be something your guests remember forever. It’s a tricky decision to make, which is exactly why a wedding cake zodiac is ideal for everyone out there who is planning their big day. Our zodiac signs allow us to take an in-depth look at who we are and why we behave the way we do, which is also why they can help us make decisions both big and small.
Whether you’re deciding what career path to take or what donut to eat for dessert, astrology can give you a helping hand. Though astrology is highly complex and involves an entire chart based on the time you were born, you can use your sun signs to make simple comparisons based on your personality. In this case, we’re taking a look at food and, specifically, which wedding cake flavor and style best fits each of the twelve zodiac signs out there.
If your infectious energy doesn’t keep people’s spirits alive at your wedding, then your cake certainly will. To match your passionate energy, we went with an orange cake covered in orange cream cheese frosting. A refreshing flavor that will get guests ready to dance the night away.
Is there anything more luxurious than strawberries and champagne? We didn’t think so. That’s why this is the perfect flavor for an occasion as momentous as your wedding. Featuring a champagne cake with fresh strawberry frosting, everyone will know that it’s your day to shine.
Chocolate and Vanilla
For an indecisive zodiac sign that wants the best of both worlds, an alternating chocolate and vanilla cake with vanilla frosting is absolute perfection. It’s almost as though it represents you and your partner — and your sign’s two personalities — coming together in the name of a beautiful dessert.
A sweet honey cake with lavender buttercream is a cake that isn’t lacking in depth — perfect for a Cancer whose emotions run as deep as the universe. The best part is that lavender and honey will help calm any anxious energy you have on your big day, keeping you cool, calm, and collected.

A strawberry cake with rose buttercream and fresh strawberries will surely get the message across that today is one of the best days of your life. And just imagine how pretty it will look in your scrapbook!
Black Forest Cherry
A classic white cake might not be your style — especially since you’re the type who isn’t afraid to try new things.

It’s a cake for a passionate zodiac sign, and will definitely pack a punch in the flavor department.

An emotional, dreamy sign like Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces deserves a sweet, sentimental cake that symbolizes the romance of their wedding day.

Though earth signs like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn tend to be grounded most of the time, they can also be quite bougie. So on their wedding day, we expect them to go all out with a hand-painted cake that perfectly matches their vision. It’s your wedding day, after all, so you might as well show off your creative ideas.
